The Pininfarina Battista is an electric sports car manufactured by Automobili Pininfarina GmbH which is headquartered in Munich, Germany with roots in the Italian car design firm and coachbuilder Pininfarina SpA. The name Battista is a tribute to Pininfarina's founder Battista Farina. The car was publicly unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
The Battista is powered by a 120 kWh battery pack supplied by Rimac Automobili. The car has four individual motors placed at each wheel and they have a combined power output of 1,400 kW (1,903 PS; 1,877 hp) and 2,300 N⋅m (1,696 lb⋅ft) of torque. The Battista shares 40–50% of the pure technical components of the Rimac C Two.
The car has a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis with aluminium crash absorbers at the front and the rear and most of the body panels are also built from the same material in order to keep the weight low. The car has 21-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.
The adjustable suspension system of the car will be tuned for maximum road comfort. The car has five driving modes all of which alter the power generated by the powertrain. The car features carbon ceramic brake discs measuring 390 mm (15 in) at the front and rear and equipped with six piston calipers front and aft. The active rear wing acts as an airbrake to improve stopping power.
The interior of the car is customisable according the customer's specification. A carbon steering wheel is flanked by two large screens on either side, displaying vital data to the driver. The interior is upholstered in leather. The car is claimed by the manufacturer to generate cabin driving sound using acoustics.
The battery pack is T-shaped and is placed as such that it lies in the central tunnel and behind the seats. Once fully charged, the battery pack allows the car to have a range of 451 km (280 miles). The Battista is claimed to accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in about 2 seconds, 0–299 km/h (0–186 mph) in 12 seconds and has a claimed top speed in excess of 349 km/h (217 mph).
The Pininfarina Battista was added in the King of the Fall Update as a high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 3,122 60
- rank: 3,308
- rank: 3,527 25
- rank: 3,761 35
- rank: 4,002 46
- rank: 4,280 58
- rank: 4,550 76
The Pininfarina Battista has the fastest acceleration in the entirety of Asphalt 9, but has a rather low top speed for Class S. Its handling, drifting and nitro are all good, however its top speed stops it from being particularly useful.
